Students must have successfully completed Entry 2 or 3 level qualifications or hold Maths and English qualifications at Entry 2 or above.
In addition to the entry qualifications listed, the offer of a place on the course is subject to the outcomes of initial assessment, which will be taken at the College as part of the admissions process. Please note that entry criteria may vary quite significantly between courses at the same level. This is to take account of the specific skills needed for success on particular courses, the length of the course and the requirements for progression to the next level. Entry criteria are given as a guide, and the exact requirements in order to obtain a place on a particular course will be confirmed following attendance at a Welcome Event/Interview.
Students will have their needs assessed, if you have an EHCP your plan needs to be considered at the same time as your application to do this course.
